Guild Chapters

The Chapters of the San Francisco Opera Guild serve an important role to develop opera audiences of greater Bay Area adults and school children. Most chapters sponsor social events, concerts and recitals, newsletters, and preview lectures of operas of the current season. Chapters also provide docents for the in-school programs of Opera à la Carte and the new Sing-a-Story program for Kindergarten through Grade 3. The San Francisco Chapter helps at opera functions, and provides transportation from and to the airport for principal artists.
